Unused vintage International Geophysical Year postage stamps from 1958 - worth 3¢ each.
The design on this stamp was based on a photograph of the Sun, taken during the International Geophysical Year, an international scientific project. During the 18 months of the project, the Sun gave off tremendous bursts of energy – an event that was observed by project members during the study. That was just one of the highlights during project’s time. Others included the launching of Sputnik I, the first man-made satellite sent into orbit around the Earth. The U.S. soon followed with the Explorer I satellite – the country’s first successful launch.
Face Value: 3 cents each
Year of Issue: 1958
